So you mean add the support as following:
1.rename current serial8250_set_divisor as serial8250_do_set_divisor
2.add a new serial8250_set_divisor which will be as simple as
static void serial8250_set_divisor(struct uart_port *port, ...)
struct uart_8250_port *up = up_to_u8250p(port);
could you please confirm?
Another issue is I'm not sure which struct to add the hook,
struct uart_port or struct uart_8250_port? Currently, it seems that only
uart_8250_port needs this hook, sure, adding the hook to struct uart_port
is fine either. Could you please kindly give some suggestions?
